Night Mother

What would you do if someone you loved calmly told you that they were going to end their life
before morning? This is Thelma’s dilemma. Her daughter, Jessie, has had it. A middle-aged
epileptic with a failed marriage and a drug-addicted runaway son on the wrong side of the law,
Jessie can find no reason to go on living. “‘night, Mother” is the story of a parent’s worst
nightmare. Can Thelma convince her daughter that life is worth living if she can’t feel her pain?
Can she end her daughter’s resolve to end her life before morning?
The play was written by Marsha Norman, which not only received four Tony Award
nominations but won the 1983 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The play has since toured different
stages around the world and will premiere in Kenya on the 21st of September at the Kenya
National Theatre.
Night, Mother is brought to you by ACT Kenya and Sanifu Productions, presented by arrangement with
DALRO. Discussions on mental health will be facilitated by Mental 360 after every show.
